    Are you looking for a how-to? I took these images from a friends install...

    Grommet to run tubing through:


    Tap BPV line:


    Run lines to gauge location (in this case, OE clock pod):


    Back of gauges:


    Tap power:

    There are likely a few, but taking pics and doing a writeup never hurt anyone.

    Do you have a multimeter? If not, get one (they're cheap). That will be the only part that should differ from the pictures I posted.

    This is what I used to install my Defi gauge. You can't go wrong with this, trust me.

    And a side note I run the power and ground from the radio and AC harnesses not the clock, good luck.

    Multimeter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Any tool store should have them. I have a Craftsman one, and picked up a couple recently from Harbor Freight they gave away free with any purchase (not sure if that deal is still going on).
